Vintage Hires Root Beer Soda Fountain Syrup
I recently purchased a bottle
and display jar collection that was found in the basement of an
old abandoned drug store in 1968 that I will be listing over the
next few weeks, so be sure to check back for more great items.
Here is a vintage Hires Root Beer
soda fountain syrup dispenser in excellent condition. This has Drink
Hires on 3 sides in thick white paint. Two of the sides show light
chipping on the white paint of the Drink letters and some discoloration
shown in picture #6. There are some light scratches on the top of
the glass, probably had a sign or other display on it, not bad but
mentioned for accuracy. The chrome metal base has a few small pits
but not bad at all, see picture #7. The plunger valve that lets
the liquid out works perfectly and it does hold liquid. The metal
bottom part of the glass looks tarnished like it is silver plated
but it is only marked patent pending. There is still some water
condensation inside from when I rinsed this out which will dry over
time but has a small opening so it's a slow process. This dispenser
is missing the spigot that threads onto the metal bottom of the
glass top. There is one listed on now with the chrome base.
Or, if you know someone who is handy a piece could be made to secure
the two parts. Because it is missing this piece it is NOT SAFE to
display as I have shown in picture #1. A bump could cause the glass
top to fall off. Although this needs a part it is still a pretty
rare piece that seldom comes up on . I'm not sure on the age
but most items from this lot were from the teens to 1930's. The
glass top measures 10" tall x 6 1/2" diameter at the widest
point. Sitting on the chrome base it measures about 14" tall
from a counter top. The slot in the chrome base is 1 1/4" wide
and the top opening is 2 3/4" in diameter. The spigot connection
for the top measures 1 7/16" and has fine threads. This will
be well packaged and insurance is included in case of loss or damage.
